on for nearly a week, now former president bill clinton jumped into it tuesday mocking romney's debate strategy. >> but people are still frustrated about the economy, they want it fixed yesterday. so just show up with a sunny face and say i didn't say all that stuff the last two years. i don't have that tax plan i had for the last two years. you going to believe me or your lying eyes here, come on. >> former house speaker and illinois republican dennis hastert, who's a romney supporter. good morning. >> good morning. >> i want to ask about the comments that president clinton made moderate mitt do you believe that romney has tacked to the center over the last few weeks? >> i think he wants to be president of 100% of all of the people in the united states. he has to address concerns to more moderate people that he has that sensitivity. i think he proved that as governor of massachusetts. >> do you think he had waited too long to do that? >> that's the way we have to go. and i looked at what he did in massachusetts. he went across the aisle, went with the legislature that was 87% democrat and got
, they cut nearly half a billion dollars from embassy security. secretary state clinton warned last year how devastating those cuts could be. >> the scope of the proposed house cuts is massive. the truth is, that cuts of that level will be detrimental to america's national security. >> it's a mess for republicans. but mitt romney isn't makinging it any better. for the past two days he's been sharing this story on the trail. as part of an effort to make himself seem more compassionate. >> i've met some wonderful people. one was a former navy s.e.a.l. he was killed in benghazi a couple of weeks ago. >> today they demanded that mitt romney stop. she told a boston tv station, quote, i don't trust romney. he should make my son's death part of his political agenda. it's wrong to use these brave, young men who wanted freedom for all to degrade obama. this afternoon the romney campaign announced they wouldn't use that story on the campaign trail again i think the american people feel the same way. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't
-muslim film. here is secretary of state hillary clinton in the days after the deadly attack on september 11. >> there is no justification. not at all. responding to this video with violence. the two joining us now is former ambassador john bolton epoxies attribute. ambassador, what we saw and heard last night, where senior state from officials gave a statement about benghazi, a precursor to the hearings today -- they did not point to any evidence of any time that supported the conclusion is a process for a a spontaneous attack. we have the story has developed over the last several weeks in. >> reading last night is also consistent with reports that in september, the day of the 12th on the, the day after the assassination, patrick kennedy, the undersecretary, read the staff that was a terrorist attack. so i think that there is a potential here for a real split between the rear side of the state department, who are not about to be blamed for this if they don't think they were responsible, but the careerist on the one hand and the obama administration on the other. you know, you have backlit w
's kind of schizophrenic. we voted for carter. we voted for clinton. we voted for reagan. we voted for bush. it goes back and forth. one of the issues we have here as democrats in kentucky is it's not here. >> do you think they'd do better? >> i don't think we could carry it, but they would do better. we'd see them in person. >> who's better for the coal industry? president obama or mitt romney? >> in the short term, i think we're too heavily regulated and we need to have a little more time for developing clean coal technology. in the long term, i think the president wants to do that. and will work to make that happen. >> i think obama in the long run would be better. >> democratic governor, steve bee shear. a litt little chilly. >> but the day's warming up. >> senior adviser dan seymour after the break. no, no, no, stop! humans -- one day, we're coming up with the theory of relativity, the next... stop, stop, stop! my car! not so much. but that's okay. you're covered with great ideas like optional better car replacement from liberty mutual insurance. total your car, and we give yo
suspect hillary clinton might be thinking about that as well. rvr was in his 70s when he ran for president as well. i think biden is an ambitious guy. he has tried to run for president twice before. it didn't work out, but he is the vice president. paul ryan is a young guy. he is only 42 years old. i suspect even if romney-ryan loses, he has a huge future. he is very popular with the conservative base of the republican party. he is intelligent, smart, good-looking. i suspect he is going to be moving as well, but right now they're not worried about 2016. they're worried about tonight. it will be a lot of fun. we're in it for the long haul. good to see you, as always. >> biden-ryan, they have one thing in common. the support of their wives. we're going to look at the two women who will be on the edge of their seats tonight. [ male announcer ] this is anna, her long day teaching the perfect swing begins with back pain and a choice. take advil, and maybe have to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye. >>> excitement ahead of tonigh
, hillary clinton asked about it today and said we knew what we knew at the time and investigating, she ducked the question. >> paul ryan came out among the more memorable lines is there's an act of terror against the united states we're going to call it what it is. this administration is caught in a lot of different explanations, complicated story, and you've got the intelligence community, state department and the white house. we cover washington. we understand there's a lot of competing voices when it comes to that. the buck stops at the white house with the president on these matters. and this was an act of terror as he says and there are a lot of different explanations. heated testimony about the fact that there were additional security requests. again this is just messy. i don't think -- look, martha raddtz asked direct questions i believe in moderators asking direct questions and getting answers. was it an intelligence failure. he didn't answer the question. and she did go back at a later point. this just -- they're just sewing more confusion about this rather than resolving the
. >> good one. sell that salesman at the top of the ticket and drives a couple cad laks. but bill clinton today, well, he was a bit incredulous about that line at an event in indiana. >> mr. ryan said last night that governor romney was a car guy. i thought, well, if having an elevator to stack them counts, i guess he was. >> now president clinton, don't you go down that line that mr. romney is just a plutocrat who will never get the 47% to take the responsibility for their own lives and car storage. paul ryan has got his back and will defend him to the gates of hell. >> mitt romney is a good man. he cares about 100% of americans in this country, and with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. and so does romney. >> yes, except mr. romney only says what he means in quiet rooms. let's get right to our panel. here in new york msnbc contributor ari melber and msnbc political analyst karen finney, and in washington msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. karen, i must

. president bush had a surplus when he took office, thanks to president clinton. our president takes office, 800,000 jobs, we're losing them every single month. the president has been working hard and all he has to do is stand on his record, talk about his record and remind folks who is there to make an economy that is built to last, to build an economy from the middle out and not the top down. who doesn't have to pretend that he cares about the 47% and for women. look at the lilly ledbetter act, so the president needs to bring it to governor romney the next time they go face to face and remind the folks who has been standing in the ready position for them. ohio will remember and we are going to vote for president barack obama. >> both candidates, though, in ohio today. ohio state senator nina turner, thank you for your time. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> absolutely. >>> we're following breaking news out of bellefonte, pennsylvania, sentencing day for jerry sandusky. and as the judge put it he'll be spending the rest of his life behind bars. i'll talk with an attorney who represents cer
'm struck by the fact that the two most important performances of this campaign-- bill clinton's and mitt romney's in that debate-- were the two wonkiests. somehow i think in a moment of great cynicism people like to be talked to in a serious powerpoint sort of way in which a lot of us in the media think oh, it's over their heads, they'll be bored. >> pelley: but don't be folksy? >> i wouldn't go too far away from the statistics and data which is ryan's home turf. >> the difference is bill clinton used the word arithmetic i've never heard paul ryan use the word arithmetic. arithmetic is a word understood by people who only went to the sixth grade or people with ph.d.s. it's one thing to be wonky and not to do it in obscure language that's off putting. i do think as well that the question of the vice president is always, judy, he's mr. august when he's chosen. joe lieberman was a popular choice in 2000 but the real test is mr. october, what he does in this debate. paul ryan was a popular choice among many conservatives but this is his moment of truth. and there's going to be a lot of nervo
. listen to bill clinton in vegas. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i mean, i thought -- i thought -- wow. here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i missed you the last two years. now the problem with this deal is the deal was made by severe conservative mitt. that was how he described himself for two whole years. until three, four days before the debate they all got together and said hey, man, this ship is sinking faster than the titanic. >> he did run it in the primary, mitt romney, calling himself severely conservative. is there risk in this strategy? what is behind it? what's the thinking? >> i think that there -- they sense a narrowing in the poll. there have been a narrowing of the polls since the debate. i think that the opportunity is in the mid tool grab those swing voters and -- i -- i think that what the president needs to do now is to really hone in on the poor message of taxes but also job growth. i think we haven't heard enough yet about how great the members were last week. -- numbers were last week. i would have liked to he

of state, hillary clinton and other personnel. can we talk about that? or not? >> if it was in a classified setting the only thing that i would think is appropriate is any inconsistencies you have seen in testimony today you could relate. otherwise, the specifics i could not judge. >> it comes down to what caused this? miss lamb, i have read your testimony. it would be horrible to watch what was going on. and the same night i read another account, at 8:30 p.m. the ambassador said good night to a visiting turkish diplomat and the streets were empty but at 9:40 p.m. an explosion was heard by agents located in building b. it is absolutely preposterous to me that we would watch ambassador rice go out and say, five days later, i would sit in a briefing and, no, you have it all wrong. this is not a terrorist attack. this is a result of a 15-minute youtube. we are in denial or, unfortunately, and some of the members are concerned because i have to tell you it is very unfortunate that terrorists don't recognize this is an election year. they tend to do what they want any time they want and when we
gotten its vote except bill clinton in 1996. and that goes back to 1972. but we have a new poll from rocky mountain, a rocky mountain poll showing obama 42%, romney, 42% among all voters. that is surprising, because just a few weeks ago romney was ahead. we rate arizona as leaning romney, and this poll was taken after the presidential debate that most people thought, even president obama thought that he didn't bring his a-game. so it is a little bit surprising that this poll shows obama slightly ahead of romney. >> yeah, at least it makes the contest more interesting and not predictable. so let's talk about tuesday's debate format. our candy crowley, she is going to be great, make that raddatz, we knew was going to be great. how is this going to be different? >> well, it is a town hall format, different than just the usual area, the candidates are speaking directly to the voters themselves. they're having to gauge or maybe you know, modify their answers based on the reaction, right? it is a lot tougher, it presents a lot more opportunities for mistakes. you remember, don, in 1992, pr
clinton who we haven't seen much in the last new days is meeting with barack obama. it's a big news when he takes a day off the campaign trail. i'll remind everybody watching fox right now the day after september 11th when we lost our ambassador and three other brave souls the president went onto campaign in nevada. he reference epd the attack, went on, kept on the campaign trail and now these questions linger. i think before the election takes place we should know the truth about the economy, what the numbers really mean and we should know the truth about the sensitive issue of benghazi. this is a critical issue. whether it was confidence, or corruption, or politics we don't really know. but we know that they said one thing, and that was verify plea untrue. >> reporter: interesting that secretary of state hillary clinton is meeting with the president. there seems to be a schism in their narratives. it was hillary clinton who not immediately, but soon after started referring to this as a terrorist attack, well before the white house was willing to. and in stark can tros to what ambassado

committee chairman peter king is calling on secretary of state hillary clinton to take action. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge has been following the story since the beginning. she is joining us live from washington. >> reporter: thank you, jenna. one theme dominated at hearings yesterday on capitol hill. it was that official washington was preoccupied with reducing the number of american security personnel at the consulate and replacing them with libyan guards even after a series of attacks on diplomats. for the military and state department diplomatic security personnel on the ground a terrorist strike according to the testimony seemed inevitable give the escalating violence. requests for more security rejected in the bureaucratic nightmare of political washington. >> it's not the hardships, it is not the gunfire, it is not the threats. it is dealing and fighting against the people, programs, and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me and i added it by saying for me the taliban is on the inside of the building. >> reporter: but yesterday ambassador kenne
by secretary of state hillary clinton, stellar people whose integrity and credibility is beyond reproach in washington and around the world are going to ask the same exact questions of these witnesses and will then make attack and then i think the american people will try to piece all of this together, and see what happened whether it could have been prevented, and what can be done, most importantly, brooke, what could be done next time to make sure that this doesn't happen again. >> sure. you point out l.a. law and i know a lot of democrats are saying, look, this is just total political theater here today. >> on both sides. >> on both sides, let's be fair. in terms of the actual investigation, elise, has anyone been arrested that is accused of direct involvement in the deaths of the four americans? >> there have been about four libyans that have been arrested in libya. i'm not sure if they're libyan citizens, but people arrested by the libyans, not really sure whether the u.s. has had access to these individuals. there is also two individuals arrested in turkey that defense secretary pa

. that is inaccurate. hillary clinton, hillary clinton was the one who called assad a reformer. paul ryan was correct when he said that. the main foreign policy point to take away from last night's debate was the fact that vice president biden continues to mislead the american people what happened in benghazi. we saw sworn testimony this week that said the state department officials in benghazi had requested extra security. last night vice president biden said that was not true. they had not heard that. when the first attacks were made, the administration went out and said that it was because of protests, because of a youtube video. then we found out that wasn't true. so today the obama administration has a lot of questions to answer, why they're misleading the american people and who is right in these different circumstances. jon: and then there was this exchange with moderator martha raddatz from abc about taxes. i want to play you a clip of that. >> in terms of style, you know, joe biden is joe biden. he is authentic and he is real and he is straightforward and he --. jon: that was actually, that
to be fixed. let's talk about with former chairman of the council of economic advisors under president clinton. he joins us from d.c. right now. on this show we have dismissed this idea of conspiracy, this number somehow fudged, no evidence to support that at all. in talking about that, we missed the fact the so-called real unemployment rate includes people who are discouraged, that stayed 14.7%, not good, fewer private sector jobs than forecast were added last month. again, not good. so for president obama, do you think unemployment is still a political liability at this point? >> unemployment is still too high. and much higher than i think he or indeed most of us anticipated it would be at this point in the recovery. the report was a good report. and i'm glad you agreed it wasn't a conspiracy. those folks at the statistical agencies are pretty independent. so it was a good number, but you're quite right. there are a lot of people unemployed, not just 7.8%, but the people who would like to have jobs, but maybe are not looking and -- connell: right. >> -- and have given up. we need a much stro
, as president clinton said. the reality is that any past or on tax reform that promises to cut rates will either end up failing to reduce the deficit or failing to protect the middle class from a net tax increase. you can, at most, achieved two of these goals. anyone pushing a plan purporting to accomplish all three is not telling the truth. the sooner we are honest with ourselves about this, the easier it will be to negotiate an actual compromise on taxes and on deficit reduction. in 1986, we chose to cut the top rate and protect the middle class. we did not seek to reduce the deficit. simpson-bowles seeks to cut the top rate and reduce the deficit but did not shield the middle class. we need a third approach that project -- prioritizes reducing the deficit and protecting the middle class and is willing to forgo a reduction in the top rate and that is what i am proposing today. what should this proposal look like? it would have three principles -- first, as in 1986, it still makes sense to reduce the number of expenditures in the code to the extent possible. in figuring out which credits and de
is extraordinary important and secretary clinton announced massive amount of humanitarian assistance and ku dos to the administration for doing that. the real problem here is that there's this struggle within the romney campaign itself over syria between neo-conservatives to militarily intervene and those who actually are more reticent and the problem is that mr. romney flip flops between one group and the other and can't quite decide which one is more important. the bottom line, however, for purposes of american interest in the middle east, arming a rag tag group of rebels at this point in time is inconsistent with understanding when's going to emerge of syria in the long run. one of the reasons why i'm reticent is because we don't really know who the rebels are. some of them are affiliates of al qaeda. some of them funded by saudi clerics. some of them indeed very good guys and deserve support but very much an open question of who would get the arms. we don't want to repeat afghanistan back when congressman charlie wilson was doing that very same thing and it was 0 is a many bin laden who ben
